She stated sure!

Enrique Penato organized a romantic setting to suggest to his girlfriend alongside the waterfront at Piers Park in East Boston on Thursday.

With the assistance of Alda Qirici of J’Adore Picnics Boston, primarily based in Wilmington, he popped the query alongside four-foot letters spelling out “Marry Me,” candles, and rose petals, in keeping with The Boston Globe.

Itzhel Zemely Cano instructed the paper she was shocked when Penato, her boyfriend of seven years, bought down on one knee.

“When she lastly regarded up, she realized what was occurring and was at a lack of phrases. She broke down in tears,” Qirici instructed the Globe.
